I never really thought about my tissue boxes, until recently. When grocery shopping, I typically just grab a pack of them and check out. But this week, I noticed there were a few more options of more appealing boxes. Why?
Unless the design on the tissue box is neutral or very simple, it will never match the room they’re placed in. Everyone has a different style and it’s reflected in their home. So, tissue boxes are now becoming more than boxes, they’re becoming home decor.
I liked this idea and wanted to make a container that I could reuse. One that always looked the same in the room. So I decided to make a farmhouse style container for my living room.
Want to make one? Follow my step-by-step guide below.
Tissue Box Supplies
You will need the following supplies to make your own.
- hot glue gun
- hot melt glue sticks
- cardboard container
I used an old Trader Joe’s coffee container to hold the tissues. You could use a Mason Jar or any other vertical container you have. You can find the rest of the materials at your local craft or hobby shop.
Step 1: glue the rope to the container
Using the hot melt glue gun, adhere the rope to the container. Start at the bottom and work your way up to the top.
Step 2: cut a hole in the lid
Now, we need to make space for the tissues to come out. Cut an X shape in the middle of the lid.
Step 3: roll up the tissues
Roll the tissues up and place them in the container.
Pull the tissues out from the center of the roll and up through the hole in the lid.
When you’re finished, you will have your very own tissue box that will remain a consistent piece of home decor in any room you choose.
